Wife – Hetty Thompson Whitehead. Born March 31, 1811. Died Aug, 18, 1876. ( The three small female photos are Hetty)
The larger photo in the sleeve is labeled “Elizabeth Whitehead” about 1912 in her wedding dress.
On the back of the old photo of Hetty Whitehead it reads “Hatty Whitehead, wife, of Dr. Ezekiel Whitehead, was raised in Oberlin, O. Her brother George Thompson, my great uncle served 5 years in Mo, Penitentiary for trying to help free slaves. He was also a missionary to Liberia, Africa. His son Dr. W. Thompson was a medical for 37 years in So Rhodesia. ”
Signed “2-2-1950 Howard Whitehead M.D.” who was the grandson of Ezekiel Whitehead and died in 1953
I have tried to find the family tree to link George to Hetty but havent found it yet, but when you google George Thompson there are missionary travels documented by him from the 1800’s
“He first was a lawyer admitted to the bar in New York in 1827. Later he graduated from Ohio Medical College in Cincinnati in 1842 and practiced medicine until his death.”
